HAVING A BABY is a life-changing experience, whether it’s your first baby or the latest in your brood.

This study shows the importance of skin-to-skin bonding to calm newborn infants. It has been shown to reduce their heartbeats, breathing rates, and increase their oxygen levels. And the effects work both ways - the research found that the mother’s heartbeats and temperature synchronises with the baby’s.

Pretty amazing.
